El Día de los Muertos

This year I made an ofrenda to honor my Dad and Grandmother for El Día de los Muertos or Day of the Dead.  It was nice to do something special with them in mind.  I have many wonderful pieces of D.O.T.D. art brought to me from Texas by my Mom and Dad-in-loves.  I also had a skull I made years ago and dolled up another one I had with some flowers.  Luckily, I had marigolds in my garden still, which are traditional flowers for an ofrenda.  If you've never made one before, I recommend you try one next year!
